At the same time the reader sees the characters dealing with self doubt, doubting others, and how forgiveness is needed in life but that hardships can overcome. the characters are warm, likeable, and draw you in and have you hoping for them to succeed. When you add in the love, passion, explicit sex scenes, and spankings this story is an overall win. I highly recommend this book for a wonderful night's read.

    This author does an amazing job with how she includes past characters into this new series but also introduces a new main character, Bella, to make a great story.

It is a great addition to the Sweet Texas Love series, with many of the people that were familiar and can read as a stand-alone. Life is full of choices, and sometimes when bad choices have been made, even after time, there is still fallout and consequences. That doesn’t mean that some wrongs can’t be adjusted and changes made. Maybe not everything can be placed in the past, but it does have a chance for a happier future. In the words of Ms. Shanna Handel, Dirty Texas Love is sex, spanking, love, and romance. Garrett Love was a man who was living at the top of the world. Sexy good looking bad boy, wall street successful job, and the world at his fingertips but he was more devil than a saint, and he brought about a lot of harm and damage in his own family, and with other people. His drinking, partying, and lack of personal responsibility lead to a whirlwind destructive self-spiraling out of control until his brother, Wes, stepped in and made him confront his destructive behavior. That was ten years ago, he went through a six-month clean-up program, and now he has Hope Reigns, a program for children of alcoholic parents. Garrett has avoided relationships for ten years since he has been sober, to claim never again, and then along came Bella Buchanan. “Never say never, sweetheart. That’s usually when love comes to find you.” --Mama Bella Buchanan is a recovering alcoholic with a son, Oliver, that his father has custody of, and she gets one weekend per month. She will be able to get him into Hope Reigns for several weeks through a donor program. Bella is a beautiful woman who still hasn’t managed to get her life together even though she has been sober for five years. Her home is a pig-sty, she has poor eating habits, and she is irresponsible with her work ethics and paying her bills. If there was ever a woman who needed someone to hold her accountable and tighten the reigns on her reckless behavior, she could become their poster child. The plot will have Bella bringing Oliver to Hope Reigns, and there is instant chemistry between her and Garrett, but she waits until the last of Oliver’s visit to ask about a job. Garrett will say yes, but he will have conditions and rules, along with discipline. “I wanted Bella. All of her. Mind, body, and soul. I was in love wither. Maybe there was something to be said about forgiveness, redemption, second chances.” “You are worthy of love and so much more. Devotion. Adoration. Tender loving care. And I will show you your worth. That, I can guarantee. And I know you will do nothing but argue this point with me, Bella, so I will say goodnight. You rest in the knowledge that you are worthy.” The past must be acknowledged, accepted, and even embraced for both Garrett and Bella to move forward in life. Garrett will be strict with her, but she needs order, guidance, and yes, domestic discipline. She needs someone to hold her accountable, push her to be better, and punish her and keeping her in line, helping her move forward to a better life. “We all carried baggage with us. For some of us, the bags were just heavier, packed all by ourselves with our choices. You can never go back and change the past. Being able to walk through the future with someone who understood your past was possible. And a miracle. I took the time to process the wild mix of emotions that overwhelmed me. I was nervous, borderline scared, feeling guilty for my mistake. And I was turned on. By his power, his control, his concerns, and his kiss. And he loves me.” The story is raw, edgy, honest, and an accounting of errors and making restitution for those past errors. It is also a reality check of putting the past in the past and moving forward, making the future a better place, and accepting that life isn’t perfect, but each person must strive to make each day better, for themselves, and those in their life. Garrett will man up to several people he wronged, including one that was innocent. He will also be the catalyst for shaking up Bella’s life and guiding her forward, holding her accountable, and punishing her with love and domestic discipline. The story has many discipline scenes and explicit sex scenes. The story ends on a very happy note, and with a sneak peek at the next book, Mastering Her Will (March 2018) Buttercup and Jake Hargett’s story. “I like my escapades in the bedroom to look like my riding boots at the end of the day. Filthy dirty.”—Bella “I knew what she needed. And what she needed more than anything right now was loving discipline.”--Garrett

    Boss of Her Heart is the first steamy book in the Dirty Texas Love series. Bella’s life is a hot mess, but she has big dreams of being better, being more in control, and having a job and paying bills is the first step. Garrett, after a past full of mistakes, has his life held together by rigid rules and strict discipline. Bella starts a job with Garrett as her boss, but his rules take on a more passionate and personal tone when they reach beyond the ranch and into the bedroom.

Garrett, after a past full of mistakes, has his life held together by rigid rules and strict discipline. Bella starts a job with Garrett as her boss, but his rules take on a more passionate and personal tone when they reach beyond the ranch and into the bedroom. But will Garrett’s rules and dominance be too much for Bella, or can she thrive under his loving discipline? I really enjoyed reading about Bella and Garrett. This books jumps right on in, but not when they first meet, but several weeks later when she asks for a job. Sometimes I had to remind myself of this while reading the book. I loved Bella, being such a mess, but wanting so much more, but feeling like she doesn’t deserve any of it, but needing love and guidance. Garrett was perfect for everything she needed and so much more. His stability was the perfect compliment to her wildness, their pasts held mutual hurts that they could relate to, and while they both felt like they didn’t deserve love, they both reached for it with open arms. This book had the perfect balance between dirty and sweet. I really enjoyed reading this book and look forward to what may come next in this series!

Some of the other reviews have mentioned the "instalove" of the characters. I have to disagree. The book talks about Garrett & Bella knowing each other for months through the program that Garrett runs before Bella came to work for him. Once they do start working together, things progress quickly. As opposed to the Sweet Texas Love series, this book focuses very strongly on these 2 characters, which I feel makes the story stronger.

    This is an amazing story that has so many layers to it. Garrett and Bella are recovering alcoholics both atoning for the chaos they created in the lives of loved ones. For Bella she used alcohol to make up for the problems she was having in her marriage instead of facing the problems head on. For Garrett he pretty much used alcohol as a stress reliever and for any other issue and he left his wife when she really need him when she was pregnant.

    I was so excited to see that this newest story by Shanna Handel was Garett’s story. He has come so far since he was the selfish playboy who dropped Carrie for Jessie and then got Jessie pregnant just to leave her alone to raise a baby. On top of that he was an out of control drunk. Of course you will need to read all of Shanna’s previous Texas stories if you want to know more about those characters.

    A very quick read. An instalove story of Garrett and Bella, both with pasts they are not proud of having. The storyline moved along so fast, it felt more like I was speed reading. I can easily accept a measure of no factual, improbable, and unrealistic facts and occurrences in my fiction, but Bella seemed over the top. She didn't behave like a college student, but more like a teenager. Evan behaved like a miniature adult. I didn't mind that the story was told from both perspectives. I think this A very quick read.

    This is a nice story of two people who have made bad choices trying to move on in life. Garrett established himself firmly in the jerk catagory in the Sweet Texas Love Series. I wasn't sure the author could turn him into a likeable character, but she managed to make me like him in this new series. Bella was likeable, but a bit overly dramatic. She worked well with Garrett's down to earth character. I liked the Sweet Texas Love Series, but I think I like this new spicier series better.

    Boss of her Heart is a sweet story about love, yearning, doubts and learning to trust. Garrett is a stern alpha male who expects to be obeyed and Bella is a sweet and sassy woman who challenges Garrett more often than not, which earns her some discipline. The intimate scenes held the right amount of spice for my taste, there were some spankings and the characters were interesting. I liked the story.

    This is a really enjoyable short novel about two people with similar histories – alcohol, broken relationships etc. – who find each other and develop a warm, caring relationship that includes a lot of discipline and sex. Both Garrett and Bella are likable characters, although Bella is very flighty – but Garrett is so solid and determined that he is able to control her and bring the relationship along.

    What a sweet DD story. Both main characters are recovering alcoholics working on making their lives better. Bella needs some structure and discipline and Garrett is more than willing to give it to her. This was a quick, fun read. Lots of well written and deserved spankings and some nice sexy times too. While the plot is interesting the characters are underdeveloped and the pacing is quite quick. However, still an enjoyable read.

    I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book. Bella and Garrett have both done some things they regret. They have both also changed their lives and come out the better for it. Finding each other could the best change of all. Her new boss Garrett is a spanking man and he wastes no time in letting Bella in on his dominant ways. Spanking romance. Hand, belt.

    A well written quick read that has a great storyline and plot. The characters are likeable and well described. They have both a past that hounts them and they have trouble to take in their future. A story about trust, love, attraction, taking chances, alcohol issues and letting others in. A great story with a different theme!

    Did not finish. First book I’ve ever asked for a refund. Well written technically speaking. But the characters didn’t make sense to me. One minute Garret was a hard ass the next he was too mushy. The plot kind of jumped around. Predictable and silly for my taste.
